As you may have seen on Time2Shine Photography’s Facebook page, we’re running a Fundraiser with Soul and Tara for The Champion Centre, here in Christchurch over the next month! How we’re doing it, with combined forces we’re holding a number of fundraisers with a Brunch to send this fundraiser off in style at the end. But lets get to why Tara and Soul are fundraising first ya?
Tara and Soul’s why:
In February 2015 Tara gave birth her beautiful boy Soul, at only 26 weeks and 3 days gestation he was a small 2 lbs 2 oz and a long 4 months in the neonatal intensive care unit.
Upon his discharge from the unit he was still faced with challenges that require regular monitoring and that’s where the champion centre have been by their side.
The lovely early invention team have helped soul with meeting his development milestones and working on closing the gap between his birth age (actual) and his due date age (corrected). Now 17 month old, Soul has learnt to sit, crawl and weight bear with sights of walking in the not to distance future. The skills, support and tips provided by the champion centre has given Tara’s miracle the best chance to meet his full potential and we want help make sure that their amazing work continues.
A bit about the champion center:
The champion center provides multi-disciplinary early invention services to infants and young children with significant disabilities and their families in Canterbury. The programme is offered in a centre-based model of service with parents, and in accordance with international best practice.
